It stretches from the historic Lebuh Ampang pass the modern high rises and Malaysia's main landmark tourist attraction the KLCC and onward to the embassy row where there are lots of embassies and the old Ampang town. Nice drive to see the different facets of Kuala Lumpur

This is a very high end residential area where most of the foreign embassies can be found. Best to access by LRT rather than driving there as it is frequently jamed.

Probably the only reason you'll traverse on this street is due to wishing to visit Kun Yam Thong Temple or to go to your embassy due to lost passport. There's nothing much other than that, really.
